A 57-year-old Michigan man has been hit with a three year prison term for impersonating an FBI agent, the Daily Tribune reported.

The paper reported that U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds in Detroit sentenced Kevin Balfour of Warren, Mi, a Detroit suburb, earlier this month.

The paper reported the man impersonated an FBI agent and said he was collecting money for Haiti, where he might be deployed. He said the money was for the children.

He reportedly also used his FBI credentials to get free food and drinks from a local bar, and last Christmas Day questioned passengers who were on the plane where the “Underwear Bomber” tried to ignite explosive, the paper reported.

The paper reported that FBI agents searched his home and seized 16 guns, 1,000 rounds of ammunition, a bulletproof vest, FBI badge and two Chicago police badges.
